E-books have changed the face of publishing. They are fast to write, easy and affordable to publish, and now – thanks to the popularity of e-readers such as the Kindle and the iPad – easier to distribute locally and internationally. Amazon.com is already selling more e-books than paperbacks, and the gap will only get bigger.

Even if you've never considered yourself to be a writer, it's easy to write and publish a high-quality e-book that positions you as an authority, generates leads and turns enquiries into clients.
